    This made an early stroll on a stroll through Cobham Woods to find Lord Darnleys Toe Monument which I last visited 60 years ago and its taken me all that time to find it again ,he chopped his toe off with an axe while chopping wood,and the Mausoleum was built for all the Darnleys,a lovely walk on a lovely day but very very cold:smile:

      Great photos!

      That's very brave of you, no one in their right mind at our sort of age should contemplate that when it's as cold as this.
      Tomorrow, I'll probably be walking only about four miles from around 9.00am, with a set of golf clubs, but then I'm probably not in my right mind.
